“NIKO” is a Greek word pronounced, “nee-ko.” It means, “to subdue, conquer, overcome, or prevail against.”
In a NIKO you learn in the classroom of life by “doing” instead of simply absorbing dry information. This ”hands-on” experience teaches you to grow in the interdependence of a team. Through the NIKO experiences you will begin to understand more about yourself and the gifts that God has given to you. You will begin to learn what motivates you, as well as your unique style of leadership. A high priority is placed upon teamwork and perseverance. You will be challenged to increase your initiative, creativity, compassion, responsibility, and confidence through serving others.
SERVANTHOOD & SURRENDER
A NIKO will challenge you to discover your mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional strengths and weaknesses. Your relationship with God and others will be tested and/or proven through this experience and its physical challenges. You will learn to confront issues of leadership and personal identity. You will be required to face and overcome many obstacles that will be encountered in life’s future decisions.
At a NIKO you will work with other young people towards a common goal. The support and inspiration of friends and compassionate Christian instructors will allow you to push past the limits you may have previously set for yourself, allowing you to draw nearer to God.
